    It can be calculated with the following key factors. 

    1. Machine availability = Actual Hours / Planed hours

    2. Quality = Accepted Pcs/ Total Production 



    You will get production efficiency.

    Production efficiency = production time/(production time -unexpected stoppages time). Production time = operational time - routine stoppages time.

    l'efficacité de production est valorisé par le respect des délais de livraisons des demandes avec la qualité demandé et se calcule par: (le nombre des commandes sortie dans leur délais de livraisons)*100\\(le nombre total des commandes), ce calcule peut se faire chaque6 mois par exemple ou par ans.


    Total number of labour hours / Total units produced = Productivity per employee hour

    Line efficiency (in percentage) = Total minutes produced by the line *100 /total minutes attended by all operators. It is   depending on men, machine  and material optimization al utilisation

    To calculate the production efficiency you must calculate  the following and compare it with actual results.

    1\\Target  UPH (unit per hour) =  (Target Unit/Day) / Plan working hours

    2\\ Target UPPH (unit person per hour) = UPH / Plan Manpower persons

    This is with example hope give you better clearity.

    OEE – Overall Equipment Efficiency is Comparison between “actual output” and “should-be output”.

     Availability Rate X Productive Rate X Quality Rate

    i.e   Scheduled Loading Time                 =60 Min X8 Hrs –40 Min =440 Minutes

          (40 Minute is break time)

     Available Time                                        =440 –80 Minute =360 Minutes

    80 Minutes lost due to changeover (45 min), Breakdown & Repair (25 min), Broken Tool Replace (10 Min)

    Productive Rate                                     =420 pcs produced X40 Sec/pc

    (40 sec/pc is engineered cycle time)     =16800 sec /60 =280 Min of Productive Time

     Availability Rate   = (Available Time / Scheduled Time) =360 /440 =0.82 =82 %

    Productive Rate   = (Productive Time / Available Time) =280 /360 =0.78 =78 %


    Quality Rate         = (Acceptable Quantity / Total Quantity) = (420 -30) /420 =390 /420 =0.93 =93 %

                                                     OEE =0.82 X0.78 X0.93 =0.5848 =59.48 %
